List of attractions in Conwy

Conwy is acclaimed for the Castle and the Town Walls, but Conwy has much more to offer including Plas Mawr, the Elizabethan town house, Aberconwy House the oldest merchant's town house in Wales, and St Mary's Church that was once the church of the original Cistercian Abbey. But Conwy also has another claim to fame, Conwy mussels. For generations family businesses have harvested the mussels in the Conwy estuary, and they still gather the mussels in the traditional way. But there is another lesser known by product of the mussel industry. Pearls. Visit the Mussel Museum on the quayside and learn about the history of pearl fishing from Roman times; discover whose crown once housed a Conwy pearl; find out how mussels are harvested today; see the state-of-the-art mussel purification tanks. Find out how to enjoy this tasty treat – considered by some to be an aphrodisiac?
Please scroll down the page for more information and more pictures of Conwy. I start with a few pictures of Conwy and the Quayside. I then use the Quayside as the start point for a small walk around the town to visit a few attractions.
For more information on the Castle visit this page >
